I am working on a project that I assumed was going to need a lot of rivets.  I was getting ready to get going when I looked a little closer at the proto photo.  No rivets in half the places I was going to rivet.  In fact I maybe removing some rivets from a few areas on the pre-made parts.  I like Woodies rule, "Look at old buildings from maybe 50 feet away (1 foot for O, 6" for HO) and tell me that you can see nails."  I guess its up to you.  Are you modeling a railroad or one engine/car/ building?  I am going to worry a little less about rivets for now and get on with the railroad.
